             “What Doctors Do When
              They Feel Rotten….?”
     Do they just take a “magic” drug that they
     never told us about? The medical profession
     and prescription drugs deal only with symptoms,
     not with the cause of sickness. Chiropractors
     have dealt with the cause for over 115 years,
     and have never wavered.
                    We Offer Great Care At A Great Fee.
       We have delivered thousands of chiropractic adjustments and have spent
        years learning and applying a very gentle, highly researched form of
                  chiropractic called Network Spinal Analysis (NSA).
             Are You Ready for the Best Year of Your Life?
     Researched benefits of NSA include less physical pain, improved allergies and
      eczema, fewer headaches, less menstrual discomfort, improved response to
      stress, improved mental and emotional state, improved life enjoyment, and
                            improved overall quality of life.

        OUR OFFER: When you are one of the first 10 people to mention this
      article, you will receive our entire new patient exam for $27. That’s with a
      computerized diagnostic test and any other necessary tests. Further care is
     very affordable and you’ll be happy to know that we have great family plans.
     BODY IN BALANCE CHIROPRACTIC, P.C., is located at 755 Heritage Rd.,

     1. It is required that all infants and toddlers 3
        years and under wear swim diapers under
        their swimsuits. (Swim diapers may be
        purchased at the Front Desk.) No regular
        diapers are allowed in the pool.
     2. An adult must accompany children under
        the age of 6 INTO THE POOL. The adult
        must pay admission, be wearing a swimsuit,
        and be actively participating in the water
        with the child. Maximum ratio of 3 children
        under 6 years of age per swimming adult.
     3. Children 6 and 7 years of age must be accompanied by an adult AT POOLSIDE. The
        adult may observe from the side of the pool.
     4. Adult lap swim is for ages 16 and older. Swimmers must swim continuous lengths
        in lap lanes. Open swim takes place in the remaining pool area and water features
        may be operating. Those under the age of 16 interested in lap swimming should see
        hours for Public Lap Swim.
     5. Only bathing suits, swim trunks or board shorts appropriate for a family atmosphere
        are allowed in the aquatic facility. Street clothes, cut-offs, thongs, jeans, or workout
        clothing are NOT permitted. Staff reserves the right to deem any questionable attire
        inappropriate.
     6. Patrons under the age of 14 are not permitted in the hot tub or sauna.
     7. Lifejackets are available for those in need. Please visit the lifejacket area at each
